The Kingston Hotel
Food wasn't great and was expensive for what it was. Wouldn't go back anytime soon.
We regularly return to the Kingston Hotel for its good food, good atmosphere and friendly and attentive service.
Perfect pre footy catch up. Good choice of beer on tap and good value meals
Went to the Kingston for dinner it happened to be steak night best steak I've had thanks will def be back great atmosphere and a beautiful old pub
I am incredibly disappointed to see that the standard at the Kingston has dropped dramatically. This was my favourite Pub to come to before the footy last year during the finals. Great value and great food. This year not only have the prices gone through the roof but the drop in the standard of food is even more staggering. I wouldn't have minded paying more for a great venue like that but the food was horrendous to say the least. Two params, one being luke warm and the other being burnt. minimal chips on both. The Ravioli was just as bad with zero flavour as well as being warm and watery. The poke bowl may have been the worst of the lot and I would provide details but it was so bland that its not even worth my time. Whatever has happened over the last year needs to be reversed. Please be sure to publicise when you return to your former glory.
Awesome little pub in Richmond, you walk through the front door and feel like you've stepped back into the seventies. Make your way through the bar and front dinning area and it opens up into a white table cloth restaurant with a very warm relaxed atmosphere and a cute beer garden. The food is great, the staff are great and always happy to see you. We go to this Pub alot especially before the Footy.
Good pub meal and friendly relaxed atmosphere. Enjoyed our night having a quiet catch up and watching the footy.
Great local pub with good traditional pub fare as well as a good variety of vegetarian and fish meals. Staff are always friendly.
Great Place for a feed and a beer before the footy. Absolutely packed, and was very busy, but that understandable as its a typical pub with a big bar and great atmosphere. Would definetly patronise again.
Have been here several times over the years, food always good, but the footy menu is very limited.
Great food, friendly staff. There was an error on our order but they cleared it up with a replacement and waived any additional charge. Thanks Kingston team. A lovely night.
Soon as you walk in the door really welcoming pub with super friendly and knowledgable staff. Great meal and great time had. Thank you very much.
Both the special fish options were excellent.I hadn’t had such a good snapper in a long time.
We loved our first visit to the Kingston. Booking online was easy, also made a follow-up phone call and they could not have been nicer about getting us a table outside. The food was delicious, although it took a little while, but that was fine because we were enjoying our drinks and the ambience. Though it was too hot to sit outside in the end, there is a lovely garden which we will enjoy next time.Not too noisy, unlike some pub restaurants. Would recommend it and go again
Food was full of flavour. Couldn’t fault any of our meals. Service was very good and our meals and drinks came out in a timely manner. It’s a hidden gem, but won’t stay hidden for much longer. We’ll be back again.
Overall it was a great venue. On the food front I would have like to have more vegan and fresh vegetable options
It might become our luncheon venue when we are in town as we generally stay nereby
It's been a rendezvous point for a number of years and I have never been disappointed. I like it, my friends like it and Dougie's a great host.
The ambience in this hotel is wonderful, the food and the staff awesome. There IS a place for smokers, so we do not feel like lepers...lol It is an amazing find in the suburban streets of Richmond, Victoria. Absolutely wonderful, and the prices are quite reasonable and affordable.
Great service and god menu choices. Very clean and well presented bar and dining room. Overall an excellent dining experience
Always good food and service and very handy to the train ststion
Love The Kingston - great food and service, beautiful environment, excellent ambience, and so many places to sit to eat - at the bar, the front lounge area, the private room to the side, out in the glorious beer garden or down in the restaurant.
Great time by all. Outdoor area for pre-dinner drinks then dinner in the Resturant.
Wednesday steak night deal of $20 for a steak and glass of red was too good to refuse and steak, accompaniments and red were excellent. Good choice of mid-priced ($60ish per bottle) wine list options and good range of beer on tap. Service terrific. Definitely recommend
Went to the Kingston for lunch with friends. Have been there quite a few times over the years and the food, service, drinks and ambiance have always been great. Would highly recommend this pub to anyone.
Lovely venue and good customer service . Reasonably priced
We had a very pleasant lunch with friends. The food was of a very good standard, our waiter needed a bit more training. He struggled (Language Barrier?) with understanding our orders and left empty plates on the table for too long.
Despite that a very enjoyable experience.
Really enjoy dinner here. Restaurant has formal seating but a relaxed atmosphere. Food is always presented well, good choice including delicious vegetarian options, fresh and tasty. Never a wait for service or meal arrival. A local gem indeed.
Rather disappointing when you order spaghetti and get noodles... wtf
Always surprised at how good the Kingston Hotel is! It's a great pub and restaurant that does good food, has a good wine list and friendly and attentive staff. Definitely worth a visit and I'll be heading back.
Great Pub, Great Food, Great Wine, Great Service, Great Vibe
The Kingston is a great find! Great food and great atmosphere, this little gem is a must if you are in the area or travelling into the area.
Awesome pub for pre footy dinner with the perfect menu and had dinner out with plenty of time to get us to the finals!
Drinks at the bar followed by early dinner before heading off to footy at the G. Food and drinks were fine, and prices were fair value. Service was friendly and efficient and staff were mindful of the time constraints.
We’ll be back.
We went as a group of 7 and had a great time in the restaurant, out the back of the hotel. Waitress was helpful, fun and professional. For a relatively quiet night, the food took a little while to come, but was great - highly recommend the beef cheek and the lamb. Drinks waiter was a bit slow, but fine once we attracted his attention. Wine list is excellent. If desperate could always walk around to the bar. Mood was very relaxed and we hung around quite a while after our meal and staff were very easy going and didn't pressure us to move on. Would definitely go again - a real neighborhood gem.
We had our Engagement party at the Kingston five years ago but hadn't been back to eat for a long time. Have been twice in the last two weeks. The menu is greatly improved with the pub and restaurant food full of flavour and great value. Most importantly for us the Kingston is kid friendly. Kid meals are a good size and come with ice cream. The staff were very accommodating and helpful in getting us settled. This is a great place for a meal for friends or in our case an early dinner with the kids.
Outstanding Food , Service and ambience, A must go too for any occasion..
Delicious food. Meals arrived fresh and full of flavour. Friendly staff. Large menu with loads of delicious choices. Good wine list. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent restaurant quality food with good and happy obliging waiter service that exceeded expectations. All four different main meals ordered were rated outstanding in flavors and cooked to a high level.
